"Project FeederWatch is a winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders at backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locales in North America. FeederWatchers periodically count the highest numbers of each species they see at their feeders from November through early April. FeederWatch helps scientists track broadscale movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance."

"Project FeederWatch is operated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Bird Studies Canada."

Although Project Feederwatch starts the second Saturday in November, you can join as late as February 28, 2008!
